Million Dollar Baby (2004)
One of many great films in the back-catalogue of director Clint Eastwood, this boxing movie takes the genre in a new direction. In a world filled with male led sports films, Million Dollar Baby helps show that women can pack a punch when needed to as well! Frankie Dunn (Eastwood) is a boxing trainer who has lost almost every opportunity he had to rise up. Maggie Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank) is an amateur boxer who seeks help from the veteran turned trainer, who form a special bond on their way glory. Filled with drama and intense bouts, the most gut-punching part of the film comes at the end with a famous twist no one saw coming.
